Sydney is known throughout the world for its especially sparkly sapphire-coloured harbour. This month it’ll play host to a celebration of all things sparkling and effervescent—but the drinkable kind.
Sparkling Sydney is a brand-new festival dedicated to all things with a little or a lot of sparkle—think sparkling rose, Prosecco, Cava, Bellinis, Pinot Chardonnay, Moscato and more. The festival will showcase over 60 sparkling wines from both local and international wineries, but the full-blown fizz frenzy doesn’t stop there.
Little Creatures and Six Strings Brewing Co will front up the bubbly craft beer side of things and there’ll be a Fever Tree gin and tonic garden bar where you can sample the award-winning range of gin from Adelaide Hills Distillery (including their hyped Green Ant Gin). There’ll be a Bellini Cipriani bar, where you can sip the ultimate sparkling cocktail combination: Prosecco and fresh Mediterranean white peach, brought to Sydney via Venice’s legendary Harry’s Bar.
On the food front, you can expect to find Asian-fusion care of Jimmy Liks, Sir Knuckles Italian-style gnocchi, “Loaded Hummus” with various toppings from Ettalong Beach’s iconic Safran restaurant, paella from Sofrito, vegan treats from Yulli’s and lots more.
You’ll also be able to shop artisanal cheese and charcuterie from La Bastide, award-winning traditional salamis from Goose on the Loose, 100% raw honey and honeycomb from Maya Sunny Honey and handmade eclairs from Choux Patisserie.
